'EtonMan' 

Difficult to balance the top hat during the swim, and those tails are a nigthmare on the bike.

can't find anything on their website for that cat.same as with the bath one

I know you don't like swimming, but an IM in a bath?

But they hide the evidence of GI issues on the run!

 according to their web site its only a half IM - bit even so I think you'd die of boredom! Plus, the little I watched yesterday (it was too cold to hangaround) the organisation - or lack of it - was teribble. I saw three crashes coming into T2 as no-one knew where to go!!

I ran the course to workout where to go, and even I got confused!

Yup, to add to what Melds says, I bet you never stopped and asked for directions

The marshals were also men. I would have been told that T2 was left at the Dorney Arms, but the bike course was straight on past the King's Head.

 Anyhow, was too busy racing fast like a real man.

Crashie - yes indeed, I'm doing Vichy half  because I'm no longer allowed to do the full IM, my titanium hip won't take it- glad to see you and ATOM are going to be there.  Hope that your missus will be there too?

Well that's a pretty loaded question!

I love Crash and Squish for these reasons:

  • They were the first people I really met from the Pirates
  • They have a dry sense of humour (lost on some)
  • If you're going to join a tri group, the names "Crashie" and 'Squishy" are really going to entice you! Not.

And Smiffy, after all the conversations we've had over the years about you 'not' being a Pirate, you've now feel differently?

 

Haha I have never denied being a pirate, just not the sort you may think!

Maybe me too... Do you hug someone or punch them in the groin? It's a delicate choice.

I hug everyone, punches in the groin are reserved for the people I like most

And I forgot, hello PSC doing OK thanks just coming to terms with the thought of new fatherhood at my old age

But the 'women' of the era now are so flakey that they *dislike* me! I've been defriended by all but the really staunch of heart... (And I do realise that I'm talking like a Robin Hood movie)

Congrats twats! Seriously, if Charlie Chaplin could do it in his 80's, you are young pups, just! x
